Last time we practiced rescues I stepped out of my Palm Stikine dry suit feeling decidedly soggy.
A test in the bath revealed no holes but I did notice dark grey patches inside the light grey lining in the chest area. It was just over a year old, so after a quick phone call for an authorisation number I returned it to Palm.
Ten days later a replacement has arrived with a note saying the old one had de-laminated.
I'm having a run of good-luck with companies replacing faulty gear. First Yak, then Aquapac, now Palm. Good show folks. And smart too.
Because I'd had such a good experience with Yak, I bought two pairs of their Fulmar salopettes for Liz and me at Stirling Canoes this morning.
